One of Sierra Online’s most popular and cherished franchises for the mature audience is without a doubt “Leisure Suit Larry“, one of their famous graphical text adventures about the original virgin on a mission. This game was released on nearly every computer system possible, from the Apple II & DOS compatibles, to the Amiga & TRS-80 Color Computer. Recently, Khan Games has been working on a new port of the game for the 8-bit NES console, and we just received word that the title is ready to start beta testing.
A little while back we gave information to our readers about how one could turn their iOS device into a Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance compatible system, by using a program called GBA4iOS. The beauty of this program is that jailbreaking was not required, something that many fans of the Apple platform were very pleased to hear. While it’s a great program, I personally found that sometimes playing certain games was difficult due to the lack of physical buttons. A new Indiegogo project to working on fixing that problem, by offering a new item called the “G-Pad”, which will give you that ability.
One of my favorite puzzle games growing up was the original classic “Lemmings”. I’ve played it for a wide variety of consoles over the years including Game Boy and Philips CD-i, and it was ported to a large amount of other systems. A sequel, “Lemmings 2: The Tribes” was also released for many of the 16-bit consoles, including the Mega Drive and Super Famicom. However recently, it was discovered that this sequel was actually planned for Sega’s 8-bit based Game Gear and Master System as well, although was never released. The prototypes were found, and made available to the general public as ROM images. Plus, this was done by the original developer.
